The Nine Bears (The Other Man) by Edgar Wallace

The Nine Bears - Edgar Wallace

DNF @ 25%

Edgar Wallace used to be one of my favorite authors while growing up; I couldn't stop borrowing his books from the library...So what the heck happened?

I couldn't finish it. I simply couldn't. I barely got through the first couple of chapters.

I had no idea who was talking at different points in a conversation. Everybody acted so over-the-top I wanted to pound my Kindle against my head, and any slower it would've been going backwards.

So what happened to make me lose that childhood enthusiasm for this author? Did I get older? Or have I, in the meantime, discovered more "modernly" written books? No idea.
